Oh my, were these all the rage. One of these landed me in detention while I was in sixth grade. I forgot to turn the sound off during one of my exams and my tamagotchi was hungry- straight to the principal's office I went.
I don't understand the fascination with these things looking back but, I do remember that people had like 5 of these strapped to their book bags. So while all of you babies complain about being bored on your Iphones... think of an older generation that had nothing but a keychain for a pet. If you miss playing with one... you can buy one here .
